“Fencing Adventure” Summer Camps at La Jolla Fencing Academy
Fencing is a great way for kids of all ages and sizes to build agility, strength, endurance, and flexibility. In addition to fitness benefits, fencing promotes intellectual development, decision-making skills, self-discipline, and self-confidence.
The new fencers will learn proper fencing form and technique; basic fencing skills including footwork, blade work, and distance control; as well as fencing etiquette, rules, and sportsmanship (fencing is a noble sport after all). The code of chivalry and the modern Olympic values of friendship, respect, and excellence will be emphasized.
Summertime is for exploration, discoveries, and making memories that will last a lifetime. That’s why at LJFA we believe that summer sports camps should be fun and exciting. Our La Jolla Fencing Academy professional coaches will introduce children to this wonderful sport in an EXCITING, ORGANIZED, AND CREATIVE WAY. Cooperative games and different themes help kids imagine themselves AS MUSKETEERS, PIRATES, AND JEDI.
